This is outrageous! The Bush Administration is allowing Target, WalMart, and other retailers to sell chocolate Halloween candy which contains milk from China. Much of this milk has been shown to be tainted with melamine and other toxins -- and your children will be eating them at Halloween
The widespread practice of adding melamine to powdered milk products has killed and seriously injured thousands of children in China.
The GOP-run FDA has made a political decision not to take action on this -- because the US is the ONLY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD (including China) which has not withdrawn this candy. The Bush Administration apparently wants to avoid this issue being on voters' minds before the election.
All products containing milk and made in China before September 1 have been pulled off of the shelf of EVERY COUNTRY including China -- EXCEPT IN THE US!
Unlike every other country in the world, the GOP-headed FDA has made a decision not to do a recall of these products. Why wouldn't they take action to protect children? Because the FDA doesn't work in the public's interest, but only in the interest of the corporations that support the GOP.
It is incumbent on the FDA to prove that this candy is safe, or else remove it from the store shelves as EVERY OTHER COUNTRY IN THE WORLD has done.
This should be the headline on CNN and elsewhere! It's outrageous.
Your children may well be eating melamine this Halloween -- thanks to the party currently in power.
When the public's safety is in the hands of corporate-run government offices, no one is safe. By voting GOP, you are voting for melamine and other toxins in your life.
Note -- this guy in the video makes solid statements, but goes on too long, it turns into a repetitive rant...but the point is true. Protect your kids.
